MEET THE TEAM BEHIND POLIT CASE COMPETITION 2020

Who are the people behind the white shirts and dark pants?

The organizing team consists of students of economics from the University of Copenhagen, volunteering to create the best case competition in economics. The team includes students from different semesters to make sure the case is well fitted for any level of economic knowledge. Together with our partners, we create a case experience for participants who want to test their economic knowledge and skills in a case solving environment, as well as equipping them with the best tools to further their abilities.

The case-writing team are in charge of writing the main case. They cooperate with a case partner who is unknown to the public until the day of the Case Experience. The focus of the case-writers is both to create the greatest case for the participants, as well as managing the interests of both Polit Case Competition and the partnering company.
